The Penn Food and Wellness Collaborative (PFWC) is a unique, multidisciplinary initiative that engages stakeholders from across the Penn community around four central pillars of wellness, food access, sustainability, and education. The flagship site of PFWC is the Penn Park Farm, which is Penn's first and only on-campus farm. Join fellow Penn alumni for a special tour of this space with Penn Park Farm staff and learn how the farm uses regenerative agricultural practices to grow approximately 2,000 pounds of organic produce each year while serving as a living laboratory that hosts hands-on learning and research opportunities for Penn students and faculty. Then hear from Penn Professor Jennifer Pinto-Martin, the Viola MacInnes/Independence Professor of Nursing, who will explain how her research and work aligns with the work at the farm and how its thousands of pounds of produce support food access initiatives on campus and in the hospital systems. Reception to follow.
